    more questions, pretty please :)

    I know I've been reading on here and learning and asking, but I'm just not quite confident enough in myself. So.... I went into the dreaded pool store for DE and opened my big mouth, brought water and asked questions You'd think I'd learn by now So anyway... here are my current numbers (by my test, except for the phosphates #).
    FC 5
    CC 0
    TA 100
    pH 7.2
    CYA 25
    phosphates- over 1000

    My water is a dull green and I had been maintaining shock level for a few days now, testing, bumping and the whole nine yards, waiting for the water to be sparkly and nice. I know it's something I must be doing, but it's just not clearing up. So I did something dumb- I listened to the phosphate bit and bought phos-free b/c I am not knowledgeable enough to know that I didn't need it, until I came home, dumped the stuff in and then read on here that I didn't need it. So, my question is- can I start shocking my pool with the dumb stuff in there? or do I have to wait the 48 hours that they told me at the pool store?

    I have a 15x 30 AG pool with a hayward ec40 DE filter, which I am running constantly at this point.

    Just me now, I know I deserve it. Thanks!

    The phosphate remover will cloud up the water a little bit, but can otherwise be ignored. [shock:3vudjemc]You can go ahead and shock the pool.[/shock:3vudjemc]
